Show Us Your Life-Wedding Part 2

Part 2 of the "wedding series" over at Kellys Korner is show us your flowers/songs and wedding party.  We had 4 songs to play during our wedding. Our mom's walked out to David Tolk's Grace, I walked down to David Tolk's In Reverence and we had a moment during the wedding that was just to ourselves, we were able to say everything that was on our hearts in private, David Tolk's Revelation played.  If you've never heard of David Tolk, check him out, he is so gifted and his song are annointed!  We walked out to Jason Catro's version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. Our flowers were simple, varying shades of ivory.  I didn't want to compete with the natural beauty of the wedding location.  Speaking of, the wedding was held in East Texas on land that has been in my family for over 100 years.  Five years ago, I purchased it, about 90 acres.  It's rolling land, surrounded by pine trees and overlooks a beautiful pond.  The pics you've seen with the dirt road and trees were taken on the dam of the pond.  The exact spot we were married on is the spot that Bleu first told me he loved me.  We had taken my parents ranger over to "our" land and parked it overlooking the pond.  We were dreaming...dreaming about our future, our home, our children.  I knew when Bleu told me he loved me, that I would be his wife.  We hope to have a home/farmhouse on that same land someday.  You'll see in the photos below that my mom planted daffodils around "our spot".  They will bloom every year around our anniversary, an awesome reminder of God's blessing!

My bouquet was comprised of ivory roses and hydrangeas

Topper on the cake, I'll show the whole cake next week!

Reception flowers: white stargazed lilies, white gladiolas, filler, branches.

Bleu and I chose to keep our guest list to family only.  This included our parents, brothers, sisters, nieces/nephews, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.  Basically anyone that attended the wedding, could have been IN the wedding.  Therefore, we didn't have bridesmaids and groomsmen.  I included a pics of our awesome families!

Bleu's parents, bros, sisters, nephews, niece
My mom, dad, bro, sister-in-law, nephew.

It was the most amazing day of my life!  Bleu is such a precious gift from the Lord, I'm often overwhelmed with how much I love this man and how much he loves me!

Come back next week for reception pictures!

  12. I stumbled across your blog from the lives of doctor wives, which I read from time to time. I am commenting because I realized I know your husband! I met him during a one week exposure on the Cardiothoracic surgery service where I go to medical school. I remember him going out of his way to teach me and that he actually introduced himself and talked to me like I was a real person - which you may know, is rare in surgery. For one week, he made a big impression.
